The Dreams of Gaia Tarot- 2 of Air, represents partnerships, and aligning yourself with "like thinkers" who share your goals and visions in order to take an idea into reality. Here we have a power-sharing moment where 2 people, or the "Will to Force"-(emotions) and the "Will to Form", (Information) of and individual become partners in manifestation, giving each more chances towards success and achieving their ambitions then they would have alone. Will to Force is called Chokmah, the 2nd Sephiroth-Wisdom in the Western Qabalistic Tree of Life and Will to Form, is called Binah, the 3rd Sephiroth called Understanding. So when Wisdom and Understanding come together, creation is pretty much guaranteed. Therefore, the 2 of fire represents teamwork, and working together in a harmonious way that provides dominion in that area of creation.
What the 2 of Fire asks one is do they have a goal or outcome that they wish to manifest, but can't accomplish without assistance? Therefore, when the 2 of Fire shows up in a divination, it implies that a partnership is a available, representing a partnership that allows one to work with another in a collaborative way. That person may come as a mentor, who by working with you may teach you the much needed skills or a partner who works with you, halving the workload. Either way, now is the time for teamwork.
The Two persons on the 2 of Air card are Golden Yellow, the color of Air/Mind and Red the Fiery Spirit both combine to make the "red and gold" serpents and/or "dragons" of the *Kundalini force traveling up the individual spine of a initiated kundalini Tantra meditator and practitioner. One who claims the Flesh as the Domain of Spirit. Sometimes these are blue and red or white and red serpents, depending on the Tantric sect. Either way, there are two polarities to this kundalini and it is noted to be a feminine force (Will to Form) that brings along its male counterpart-Will to Force. Hence it is androgynous energy called the "inner-soul" and/or Archetypal Star Energy, stored within as a "wealthy inheritance" from one's parent sun (we are all made of Light). Since it is a Willed force to emote and manifest energy by changing ones form into the "philosopher's stone" of the Western magics, it must be guided by a competent teacher/mentor for mental-emotional harmony's sake. If one wishes to become a Spiritual Fire that claims it's domane in the flesh, one should begin pairing up with one who has. It should be obvious, that when you add greater force to a unprepared vessel, you risk a rupture and/or dysfunction. Therefore, it is time to pare up to a mentor of kundalini meditations/kundalini yoga (yoga is Sanskrit and means "communion") so that you can become the inheritor of greater Shakti/Spiral/Spiritual power, without psychological imbalances.

Distinct feeling of electric current running along the spine
Kundalini (Sanskrit: कुण्डलिनी kuṇḍalinī, pronunciation (help·info), "coiled one"), in Hinduism is a form of divine energy (or shakti) believed to be located at the base of the spine (muladhara). It is an important concept in Śaiva Tantra, where it is believed to be a force or power associated with the divine feminine. This energy, when cultivated and awakened through tantric practice, is believed to lead to spiritual liberation. Kuṇḍalinī is associated with Paradevi or Adi Parashakti, the supreme being in Shaktism; and with the goddesses Bhairavi and Kubjika. The term, along with practices associated with it, was adopted into Hatha yoga in the 11th century. It has since then been adopted into other forms of Hinduism as well as modern spirituality and New age thought.
Kuṇḍalinī awakenings have been described as occurring by means of a variety of methods. Many systems of yoga focus on awakening Kuṇḍalinī through: meditation; pranayama breathing; the practice of asana and chanting of mantras. Kundalini Yoga is influenced by Shaktism and Tantra schools of Hinduism. It derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of Mantra, Tantra, Yantra, Asanas or Meditation. The Kuṇḍalinī experience is frequently reported to be a distinct feeling of electric current running along the spine.
When the 2 of Fire is thrown during a divination, it implies:
- Align yourself with another.
- A power sharing situation.
- A time for teamwork and cooperation.
- A struggle for power.
- Seek one who will teach much needed skills.
- An equal exchange of energy.
- Someone who will help you overcome obstacles.
The 4 Twos and the 2nd Sephiroth Chokmah
The Upper Trinity of the Supernal Triangle can be compared to the Garden of Eden from here, the male and female polarities of energy balance against and with each other, evolving into increasing density as they develop towards the lowest Sephiroth, Malkuth, on the Tree of Life.
In Qabalistic Gematria, the number 2 symbolizes the union and balance of opposites that underlies all material existence. Because this equilibrium of opposites begins in Chokmah, it is called the Sephiroth of” Perfect Harmony”. While Kether is that which the “Root” of impetus is: Chokmah is the impetus for all manifestation. The Harmonic Union of opposites supplies that action.
Binah is considered to be likened to the frequencies of Saturn (Time), and Chokmah is the will to force sphere of the Zodiac. When time is applied to energy, one gets measurement and/or form.
Ultimately Kether is Androgynous as 0=2. Therefore, Chokmah is the idea of Maleness (Electric/will to force) and Binah is the idea of Femaleness (Magnetic/will to form), and the mating of the 2 "wills the Electromagnetic Spectrum" into living form.
Once again our cultural ideas of sexuality do not apply on this Higher Scale of Energetic Communion. Here Maleness is the vital outpouring of electrical energy that is organized as will to force, limited or formalized by the magnetic qualities of Female will to form. This Upper Trinity is also called YHVH. Thus Yod is male and Heh is female, and the resulting offspring is Vau of the Divine Name that marries the Daughter who is the last Heh. This is the "secret" name of God/Divine Creative. Yod Heh Vau Heh, is represented as that attribute to the 6 lower Sephiroth in which Tiphareth (Beauty) is central.
As you may note, there are many interchangeable symbols in the Qaballah that may make it seem more complicated than it is. The essential key is that the Vital Outpouring Energy, which in intercourse with an organizing force, produces something else. For example, red combined with blue, creates purple by the motion of the mixer (Kether). Opposites joined in balanced harmony, produce something greater than the parents. This is not possible if exactly the same united with exactly the same, you would only get, exactly the same and evolutionary self-awareness would not be possible.
The Tree of Life originated in the opposition of Chokmah and Binah. However, this is not static, any more than male- female union on earth is static, there is a constant back and forth motion of growth and movement. When a change occurs in one Sephiroth, there is a natural balancing response in its opposite. There is a continual exchange that could be compared to breathing, as the inhale exhale action that powers Life. On the Tree of Life, the Uppermost Sephiroth is Kether, Eheieh ("I Will Be"), which sets the pattern for all below it. Like an electrical switch that is off, Kether is all potential, while Chokmah is the electrical switch in the on position. Thus Chokmah is function while Kether is potential. Kether is a "non-Being" while Chokmah is BEING.
Chokmah is the State of Self, where Self dreams it-selves into being, from a Divine State of Meditation. The dreamed is usually unaware of the dreamer as it dream it-selves "inside out" (we are infinite inward and limited outward; a type of Mobius loop), an ultimate fact of our Earthly existence. Thus, you are the Master and the Masterpiece, the Transmitter and the Transmitted and once again, you can see that your only savior from dysfunction, is your inner self who is the Soul and whose sole authority is to operate the form as inner to outer action. Or what I like to call In-Form-Action, as the Psyche's authority to Act in the Realm of Matter/Malkuth.
From One "I" (the all Seeing Eye Symbol) all identity becomes, so in actuality, we as different separate vibrational frequencies do not exist other than as one energy. However, we declare existence by stating "I AM". Then we set about defining that invisible principle of existence as a "Me", Thus manifestation is a simple three-word definition called, "I AM Me" of which you, as the spiral vibration of energy (spirit), hold total freedom to define. Since I AM Not, is impossible, as I am declares existence, whatever you define as not being you, simply states, that it is you. For example, one plus naught = 1, Naught-zero- has no influence in potential. So “I am happy" creates happiness, while "I am not sad" creates only sadness. Time to rethink your power over the dream of you!
Since dimensions are descriptions of spatial terms, our life dream has specific dimensions as that is our best frame of reference. The Tree of Life is how the Qaballah describes these dimensional frames of reference as being a downward flowing evolution of Chokmah thru various levels of Self Dream called Sephiroth. To make this simple, we are a collective of "like photons" that first dreams our own existence as an I AM, and that we are all, collectively the Universal Collective Unconscious, what is known as the God-Mind, which is the definition of the word Hu-Man. This process of evolutionary dreaming towards a more condensed and sensual dream self, is called the "fall", but it really is a "downsizing" and/or "condensing", that causes us to "lessen" our self-concepts to become more sensual and interactive which is intimate with creation, all of which is necessary for evolutionary experience. This condensing often causes one lose sight of their own Divinity and one must "reclaim" all the data they left behind on their "downward" journey into sensual dreaming... You may say that in manifestation, Malkuth, we are a lucid dream of I AM Me.
The goal here is to get the inner dreamer and the dreamed to cooperate with each other causing the dreamer than begins to get control over its life happenstances. This is a truly extraordinary experience and is the making of a Magi and/or Will of the One to communicate with all that it is. Here the Union of Dreamer and Dream has no veils between them, and we can have anything at all, but we no longer experience the "need" of the disconnected. We Love, without need, we created without fear of result. We want nothing at all because we become I AM rather than "I Don't Have" of the Patriarchy. We learn what does matter and what does not while we go about the Great Work of "As above, so below". For we are all Above and Below!
The 4 Twos of Tarot symbolize the Power created by the union of the King and Queen that initiates force. Those forces are the Prince and Princess that are not yet brought into action. The Twos thus imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing,
From the Golden Dawn Texts:
The four Deuces symbolize the Powers of the King and Queen; first uniting and initiating the Force, but before the Prince and Princess are thoroughly brought into action. Therefore, do they generally imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.
The key to all systems, as well as, the Universal Pattern is the only Reality, we know as Chokmah (Wisdom) on the Tree of Life. Kether is not or naught, as thus it is not reality. When we cause reality, it is of our beliefs, perceptions and opinions, so I often call Chokmah the Real...for it is not of us, but is the Will to Force before us. Our beginning is in Chokmah, the idea of us, and the Will to be, all begin there. Thus we are dreaming ourselves into willful existence. I AM Me.
Also the 2 of wands is called the Lord of Dominion whose zodiacal attribution is Mars in Aries; the element of fire. The Angels of the Decan are Vehooel and Deneyal.
This is Chokmah influencing the World of Pure Spirit known as Atziluth.
Again I am trying to explain the unexplainable which is the Supernal Triangle. This 2nd Sephiroth is pure will to force, without need of result. Which to most of us is impossible to realize as most of us exercise some emotion to reach goals. We don't realize that will to force is the Power behind Life, the Spiraling of Energy into motions that build dimensions of I AM. But before frequencies are stimulated into being, there was Will to force (Chokmah) and then Will to Form (Binah). To some Being may be form, but in fact, Being to a Qabalist is an "immortal state of Conscious Energy" while we all know that form has a beginning and an end and is usually called an "entity". In Chokmah is being. The First Being---The All Father God who has no form until She-Binah/Understanding "wills him to Form"; until she Understands him. Here in the 2 of Wands is that joining of the 2 states of Will that are "He" and "She", Will to Force and Will to Form.
This is Power in an unbridled state, for Mars is exalted in Aries as the fiery Mars rules the fiery sign Aries. Here Fire, i.e. Spirit, is pure Primal, and brilliant, warm and bright. The Dorjes, Tibetan symbols for Thunderbolts, are shown crossed on this card, emphasizing the power and harmony of this card, Will to Force and Will to Form are in balance here., The Dominion of Spirit has declared flesh as a domain. From now on we know the Male Force of Will is Will to Force, and the Female Force of Will is Will to Form. There is no lust of result in this Pure Will, made of the harmony of "He" and "She" aspects of the One. There is no "battle of the sexes" where one wishes to rule relationship over the other. There is only the Union of Wisdom and Understanding that gives birth to Knowledge and all creation. Here, Energy is initiating a current of Force, that Spiral of Energy from which all comes.
When the word Harmony is mentioned, one often thinks of peace and quiet bliss, but this is the Violent Destructive Force that initiated the "Big Bang", totally without resistance in and of itself but destructive nonetheless, as that is the First Motion of Creation, the destruction of the void. A Singularity exploded “outward" to form the building blocks of our Universe. Here Mars in Aries represents that Powerful Gathering of Force to deconstruct for reconstruction. A gathering of Will to be and Will to Form.
When the 2 of Wands-Dominion is thrown during a reading:
- The querent is experiencing the will to move forward in a new direction from a place of undaunted will, of full power, and balanced dominion.
- Contemplating new ideas without lust of result.
- What once was unfocused energy is now becoming clear and polarized.
- Affirming a new self-identity.
- A partnership of 2 powers, opposite yet reflecting each other.
- The Self confidence that only comes from affirming and approving of one's self.
- A senses of accomplishment without any feeling of satisfaction.
- A creative partnership.
- Impulse to take willful control.
